    i bet if you put us all into an Excel spreadsheet, you could chart us out by time zone, then find the *true* median, instead of just going with central time :p

    let me calculate that for you, on my Ubuntu Linux machine. Or perhaps I should my Fedora Core 4 machine, which has OpenOffice 2 Beta on it.

    btw, i finally got my dual boot machine to work the way i want! Win2k on the first drive (13gig) and FC4 on the second drive (80gig). the trick i think is that i created a partition on the first drive for the /boot, and made sure it was before the 1024th cylinder. now, i need to get her back online to run updates and install Xfce (which FC4 didn't come with :(, oh well).

    I could never get into XFCE, even though I did give it a solid try. I didn't care for the way file browsing was done, in comparison to Nautilus or Konqueror. I know you could use Konqueror in Xfce, but that's kinda goofy, IMO.

    As far as the dual boot thing, I've been doing what I documented here awhile ago; that is, both OS's reside on the same physical HD, in two partitions, and then I have a second drive for audio.

    But I now have another box for Fedora Core 4, to run as a SAMBA/NFS/SSH server. It's slower (700Mhz, 384MB RAM) but it definitely does the job.

    Ubuntu's quite fast, I like it a lot. It's a toss-up right now between that and FC4, which I really like too.

    I'm more of a GNOME kinda guy, in case you hadn't guessed. :D

    I think Leon and I need some sort of special ss.org T-shirt!

    You know there's a mountain time zone too, right?

    Aside from Alaska and Hawaii, the U.S. is divided into 4 time zones, Eastern, Centrral, Mountain, Pacific.

    I was thinking a pocket protector, but a patch will do. Speaking of which I F'd up and forgot to order the damn T-shirt.

    i use the terminal for file browsing. nautilus and konqueror run kinda slow, and the native Xfce file browser is just horrible.

    i mainly use Xfce because my machine is so slow, and i became accustomed to it. i tried Fluxbox (i think that's what it was called), and it was ok, but actually didn't run as well as Xfce did. Gnome, however, i think definitely has the edge in bringing more people to the Linux side, as it's a very close match to the windoze environment.

    i haven't run Ubuntu in a while, are they keeping up with the updates like they said they would when they first came out?
